Is your HOA a pain?

Our's is all about rules, rules, rules... Any time they communicate everything its all about rules. Their news letter- more rules.
I sent an email to ask for some info about recycling... no response.
Maybe I should send them a copy of one of our old neighborhood newsletters so they know what it should look like :)

  • No, our's is great. We have lot's of clubs (garden, women's, empty-nesters...) and the rules are there but not thrown in our face all the time.

  • Ours is HORRIBLE!!! They are totally out of control. Last time they came to my door to remind me that the front porch is not to be used for "storage", I have a bench and my children's bikes on the porch and that is it, I told them they had to the count of 3 to get off my property before I called the cops and reported them for tresspassing and suspicious behavior. With the azalea bush that grows around my front porch you can';t see the bikes, so you have to come and "search" my property to even know they are there.

    GET A LIFE!! I hate them

  • Our HOA has become less of a pain in the ass thanks to the forclosure rates here. There are so many ppl not paying their association dues that they've shut up.

  • That's why you NEVER buy a home with a HOA. EVER.
    It is YOUR property, nobody should have the right to tell you how to keep it.

  • No. Right now ours isn't doing jack. I wish they would get some of these people to comply. There are a few houses in our neighborhood that look like trash and it drives me nuts. So many have foreclosed though that the HOA hasn't been getting paid as much and they've been letting a lot slide.
